English

I went to the fair and I sold my cow
For five pounds in silver and a guinea in gold
Should I drink all the money and hand out the gold
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

I could go to the woods and pluck berries or nuts
And apples from branches, even herding the cows
Should I lie 'neath the trees for some hours in repose
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

I'd visit the neighbors for dancing and fun
Markets, the races, and gatherings galore
If I see merry people then merry we'll be
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

They say I'm a waster and down on my luck
No goods or fine clothing, no stock or no store
Should I live in a stable contented and free
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

I know this girl, she's kind and she's fair
Her neck like the swan and her cheek like the rose
Should we set out together for a far-distant shore
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

I went to the fair and I sold my cow
For five pounds in silver and a guinea in gold
Should I drink all the money and hand out the gold
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone

Should I drink all the money and hand out the gold
It's nobody's business, let them leave me alone
